I'm a self-diagnosed female. I've been reading about Asperger's for a long time now and eventually decided to join this forum after watching Chris Packham's documentary the other day.
Hopefully i'll be on the same wavelength as some of you here. Nice to meet you all
Nice to meet you. I like your name. I'm diagnosed, though late as I'm now 60 and I got the diagnosis in my 50s. You should find many people on your wavelength here. Do you identify with some of Chris Packham's traits? He seems to be more what I'd call 'left-brain' autistic as he seems to have quite a scientific/mathematical bent. I'm more right-brained. I find the outside world quite difficult and confusing, so I make sense of it through my imagination. Or, rather, I re-create it that way. Look forward to seeing you around.
Didn’t realise that we came in left handed flavours. I guess I would be left brain.....but I can also appreciate the right handed stuff...music, art, literature etc.......hey, makes me sound quite balanced out!
I'm sure you are a picture of balance Ellie! I've also been wondering if we come in introvert and extrovert flavours too.
I guess I swing both ways! Lol....but occasionally lose my grip and fall into an abyss...
are you balanced Spotty and what flavour are you? Hehe
I think I was naturally balanced but my education went a bit awry so I ended up art focussed. I was most interested in maths and physics until about 14. If I could have my time again I think I would study engineering or architecture.
Definitely introvert flavour.
Missing Missy's presence and worry about her.
We all worry...it’s part of our skill set xx
Oh so true, worry but useless to help. xx
ASD is a cow...we see so much but can’t articulate, feel so much but can’t be loved...etcetc

Toffee popcorn, sickly sweet. x

Does life sometimes feel like a film....and you the audience...emotionally involved, following the narrative...but seperate from...
